Red Rock Canyon
With Pauly on 70% work tilt and me on 30% life tilt, we had to get as far away from the Strip as possible on our day off from the Main Event, and a spontaneous drive up to Red Rock Canyon was just what the doctor ordered. Red Rocks is only 20 miles away from the city, yet while I was there, I felt like I was in another world. Huge swaths of land were burned last year in a fire and the scorched earth and trees left behind in its wake surrounded by the bright red hills made me feel like I was on Mars. In fact, I believe some of those crappy Mars movies from the late nineties were shot around there. We took the scenic 13-mile loop through the canyon while listening to a smokin' 1994 Widespread Panic show from Johnny's hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
I took a ton of pictures, and these are among my favorites.
